Guests for the con are authors: Jana Oliver, Jean Marie Ward, Pip Ballantine, R.S. Belcher, and Tee Morris, plus music GOH Johan Knight, chiptune makers Cartoon Bomb, Datacats, and Inverse Phase, makeup guest Megan Amberly, voice actor Jon St. John, the 501st Storm Troopers, DJs DJ Cutman and DJ Super Sonic, combat groups Bridgewater College Comitatus, COMARR, and Silverdain.
Just wanted to put this up cause I have been to the con and it is really fun. Very small but that is what makes it so great.
